Trade Partner: Indianapolis Colts
DeVante Parker’s true trade value is somewhat disputed. For the sake of picking a side, we’re going to call it a fourth round pick. He is an affordable option, but still the 18th highest paid receiver in the league (at time of writing), so it would be the salary attached to the player that would likely call for a mid-rounder.
The Colts are a team that is in limbo after a whirlwind of starting quarterbacks over the last few seasons. But they went out and acquired Matt Ryan, a veteran leader who could turn a talented team in to a playoff contender. Indianapolis doesn’t have a whole lot of draft capital to be waving around, as they will have no first rounder in 2022. But he may need some help at wide receiver, and it may be worth their fourth round pick to try and make a play at Parker. The pass catcher could be something of a band-aid for the Colts given that he will be an expiring contract next year.
This trade would give Miami three picks within the 102 to 125 range, giving them ample firepower to potentially move up in to the second round should they wish to do so.
